Frost & Sullivan's SG Corporate Race At MacRitchie Raises SGD125K For Charity

SINGAPORE, Aug. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan Singapore's 8 th annual 'Frost the Trail' Corporate Run at MacRitchie Reservoir Park was a resounding success as corporate partners and friends alike did their part for the underprivileged, raising SGD125k for this year's adopted charity, Bright Hill Evergreen Home.

Frost the Trail Singapore Corporate Challenge 2013 had split runners into two categories – the 5 km team race as well as the 10 km individual race. The winners for Frost the Trail Singapore Corporate Challenge 2013 were as follows: For the Team 5km race category, ABBA Consulting came in first, Cisco Systems was the first runner up and the 2 nd runner up went to ABBA Consulting. In the Individual 10km Category, the first place for the Male race went to Garth Livermore from Macquarie Group and the first place for the female race was taken by Tang Xue Hui from ABBA Consulting.

This year, strong support came from RSM Chio, RSM Ethos and Stone Forest Corporation Advisory with the largest group registration of 68 runners. Other participating companies include Alcatel-Lucent, British Telecom, Cisco Systems, DKSH, PCCW Global, Huawei, InterCall, Jebsen & Jessen, Keppel Logistics, Macquarie Bank, Mazars LLP, MSD International GmBH, NEC, Polycom, Shangri-La Hotel, Teleperformance, Telstra, Tote-Board, Tyco and WorleyParsons.

Thomas Tay, the organising chairman of this year's event is appreciative of the invaluable support the event has garnered but believes more can be done. He said, "Frost & Sullivan Singapore's 8 th annual 'Frost the Trail' Corporate Run is a joint effort with our corporate partners to help the less fortunate. Through this run, we hope to raise funds for our adopted charity, as well as encourage others to do their part to contribute to worthy causes and make a difference in the community. Our collaborative effort will go some way in providing the necessary support for our beneficiary so that they could continue their efforts in improving the quality of life for the underprivileged under their care."

Penny Low, Member of Parliament for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC graced the event as the Guest of Honour and presented the cheque to the beneficiary. She was accompanied by Wan Pak Khiong (Mr), Chairman of the Citizen Consultative Committee for PasirRis-Punggol GRC. Prior to the cheque presentation ceremony and dance performance, all participants had the opportunity to mingle amongst peers, colleagues and acquaintances whilst enjoying breakfast. This year, the carnival mood was brisk with refreshments provided courtesy of Telstra, WorleyParsons and Frost & Sullivan Singapore. All runners and seniors received a goodie bag each and had the opportunity to participate in the lucky draw. 

Seniors from Peace-Connect Senior Activity Centre also showed their support for the corporate run with a vibrant dance performance. The dance movement of the energetic seniors impressed the crowd and inspired them to follow suit.
